Who said you deserve it? Your mother?
Who said you don’t need to be accountable?
Your friend?
Who said you’ve worked hard enough? You?

Don’t give me that, child.
You are not entitled.
You are not better than.
You are not entitled.

Take a trip around the world
And see what you are entitled to–
You are entitled to help your neighbor,
feed the hungry, love the unloved.
You are entitled to fulfilling your
human birthright–
You are entitled to show someone else
that it is better to be nice
than entitled.
